Winchmate Self-Tailing Conversion for Barient & Barlow winches 27 through 32

At last! A cost-effective alternative to an expensive problem.

Do Your Buyers Balk at Non Tailing Winches?
Let them know they don't have to spend a boat-load!

A revolutionary new product for the sailing industry, and older boats in particular, the Winchmate was first introduced to an enthusiastic audience at the Strictly Sail Pacific Boat Show in April of 2006. Developed and engineered as an affordable alternative to the high cost of winch replacement on older boats, the Winchmate easily converts standard, non-self-tailing Barient and Barlow winches (sizes 27 through 32) into true, full self-tailing winches. Rigorously tested for more than three years on San Francisco Bay, each Winchmate is heavily constructed of chrome bronze, hard anodized aluminum, and type 316 stainless steel.

With simple, easy to follow instructions, any boat owner can turn their older standard winches into self-tailers in about 30 minutes. No special tools or drum modifications are required, and the Winchmate is maintenance free. Prices range from $499.00-$599.00.
